Malaga City Council plans to house part of the Thyssen-Bornemisza collection in the Palacio de Villalón. The collection is made up of 358 Spanish and Andalusian paintings from the 19th century.
Around 40% of the works that make up the exhibition are on exhibit for the first time and around 40 are from Malagas artists or closely connected with Malaga. The artists which will be on show include Zurbarán, Sorolla, Romero de Torres and Juan Gris among others. The Works which will be exhibited will comprise a very complete collection made up of artists most representative of the junction of the 19th and 20th centuries and form the large part of the collection. There is also a select representation of the 20th century from which you will be able to see early avant-gard works: Juan Gris, Morena Villa, Bores, Francisco Cosío, Evaristo Valle, Benjamín Palencía, and also figures such as Gerardo Rueda, Saura, Úrculo and Equipo Crónica.
The collection also brings together a baroque representation with the work Santa Marina by Zubarán. The museum will comprise the aforementioned collection, a study library, a temporary exhibition hall, a restoration workshop, a works warehouse, cafe bar and bookshop.
